DELANO, Minn. (WCCO) — Rising flood waters in Delano became a tourist attraction Sunday afternoon as people from all over came to see the rushing Crow River.
The river was just a few inches shy of last year’s historic crest. At 19.97 feet Sunday evening, the river reached the fourth highest mark in its history.
As officials kept watch over the river, gawkers from Delano and as far away as St. Paul took their time watching the river and visiting local shops.
